volume
« on: May 11, 2020, 07:09:41 PM »
Hi, I would like some information on how I go about decreasing the sound in a class 40 . It has a zimo mx658 next 18 decoder and I am using a gaugemaster prodigy advance. I have tried using F27 but it goes down to much, I don't know how I stop it to where I need the volume. Could someone explain how I can decrease the volume .

Cheers Steve44

You've probably tried this, but just in case - on my Zimo you click the function once to change and click again to confirm the volume. You have to be quick.

CV266 is the master volume CV on a ZIMO decoder. Default value is 65 so work your way down from there.
If you use programming on the main (POM) then the volume will alter as you enter different values.

Hi, I had a go at changing cv266 , changed this to 30. Well when engine is running idle it sounds a bit quieter but when loco moves it gets loud again. Very strange or is it me. Hope someone can help.
Cheers Steve.

Try less than 30 then! Just make a note of what you change so that you can revert it if necessary.
